    How do I... populate my title post field dynamically with a youtube title?

    If I provide a link of a youtube video in one of my custom fields post fields can GF somehow get the title of the video and put it into the title?

    Thanks.

  2. How does the video URL get into the custom field, and how does Gravity Forms access that? Is the custom field in the post where the Gravity Form is embedded? Please provide more information about what you're trying to do.

    You can get the video title from YouTube URL using the YouTube API:

    You'd have to have some code in your theme's functions.php and use the gform_pre_render filter to take the URL of the video and get the title from YouTube and pre-populate the post title in your form. I'm not sure where the video URL comes FROM at this point.

  4. I'm unclear on that part. Can you please explain this? Is the form going to be embedded into a post which has a custom field which stores the video URL? So, the Gravity Form needs to read the meta key and meta value for the post in which it's embedded? Is that accurate? Thanks.
